That’s poppy not poopy peeps (fab alliteration!!) and please excuse the sad and corny post title – sometimes I cannot help meself (can you tell it’s Friday then?).
Or maybe it’s the title of this week’s Just Magnolia & hAnglar & sTanglar challenge which is
(mmm, that could explain a lot)
Well of course, I do love me spotty papers so this was right up my street.
And we are sponsored by
and they are offering a fantastic prize of a voucher of : 20.00 Euro to spend in their store :)
So out came my fave spotty dotty papers and ….
.. this is what I did.
I decided to use one of my H&S images (I think I might love them even more that Magnolias to be honest) and I coloured them with these Copics -
Skin: E00, E21, R11, R20
Hair: E42, E50, E51
Clothes etc: BV0000, BV00, BV02, E0000, E00, E31, E33, E35, E51
I also gave Lord Tim’s Scallops a day off (no Sue, I haven’t put it away yet, honest, and FAB to chat the other day xxx). Instead I used my Tilda Lace die which I love just as much and you can get them from Tracy at Dies To Die For.
So now the post title makes sense (well sort of) because these are the poppies. I think they are just about the prettiest flowers and the colours are just drool-worthy.
Today I used the lilac ones …
… these ones here, plus a few other Wild Orchid Crafts blooms.
The sentiment is from the Pink Petticoat Girly Curly Sentiments Collection.
Now talking of PP, I have some quite exciting news to share ..
Most of you will know that in this month’s Quick Cards Made easy mag, there is a free Pink Petticoat paper pack.
Also, the mag features Papertake’s very own Steph and Katina (I feel like a proud mum xxx) PLUS everyone’s fave Mummy Fairy (and she‘s my JM teamie as well and of course I just love her to bits xxx) and that is the sweetness that is Jacquie.
Now that’s 4 good reasons to buy the mag :)
It will be in the shops on Tuesday - although if you're a subscriber, you've probably already got yours, stroked them and LOVE them.
But there’s more…
Because next week we are celebrating, and you are all invited to the very first
Pink Petticoat Blog Hop.
It's an Inspiration Blog Hop and to make it extra special, it's a prize-winning Blog Hop too!
So in Liz’s own words ….
Myself and the Creative Team have been busy creating for you using the designs from the 'Vintage Rose' Paper Pack. And we hope to inspire you by sharing our ideas with you on our blogs.
